Going through old photos
I have a problem. I wish I could say it was a small one, but you know, it isn’t. I have no space left for photos.
My laptop is 1TB and it is full. I have an external disk that is 2TB and it is full. I also have the NAS, the backup system for my photos. It is 8TB and it is full. That means I have around 11TBs full of photos.
Dave refuses to buy me more storage, so I have the monumental task of going through all my images and deleting heaps. There is that time I was always bracketing, so that means I had either 3 or 5 copies of each one. OMG. So I am getting rid of all but one of each series of bracketed shots. Then again, some of them are the same as others, so I’m deleting them too.
IT IS SO BORING.
I’ve known it is something I’ve had to do for quite some time, but I kept putting it off. Or I would do a little and then stop. The lesson here, do it sooner after a shoot. That is what I’m doing more now.
With my trip to Uluru coming up and some new work I want to do, I need to find space for all the photos. So I am going to have to spend some time going through them and deleting or weeding if you like. If I could delete around 100K that would be great. Almost 10 years of digital files to go through, wish me luck.
One thing that is nice when going through older photos are the things you find. Like the ones below.
Something I used to do but am thinking of revisiting it. I did these back in 2013 and I’m sure a few of you might remember them.
Anyway back to the weeding. Have a good weekend everyone.
